'60 Days In' Season 6: Texas cop Ashley's cover is dangerously close to being blown
The Texas cop who has so far fared the best in this season of the A&E reality show saw her worst fears come true when an inmate walked up to her and asked her if she's on '60 Days'
Don't be a hero in prison and when a fight breaks out don't look at the cameras and say you love it. Undercover inmate Ashley learned these lessons the hard way in the latest episode of '60 Days In' Season 6. The Texas cop who has so far fared the best in this season of the A&E reality show saw her worst fears come true when an inmate walked up to her and asked her if she's on '60 Days'.
By now, the women's pod in the Etowah County Detention Center in Alabama has three undercover inmates - cop Ashley, Jennifer, a former stripper and born again Christian and Shanese, a teacher for at-risk youth. Shanese, who is allergic to gluten, has had tough luck finding food that she can eat with the jail not providing enough vegetables and fruits. She's trying her best to make it through for her students so she can help them deal with their jail time better, but it has been painful.
While Jennifer, who is popular in the pod thanks to her good looks and confidence, is also doing well; we haven't seen her be as tough as Ashley has. From making a makeshift bra to getting an officer to quit and sometimes also helping the other inmates, Ashley has truly exhibited strength in the face of adversity, but she slips up.
During breakfast, a violent fight breaks out in jail. "I love it!" says Ashley, unconsciously looking at the camera and an inmate picks it up. Everyone's laughing at Ashley's table so no one notices it, but the inmate who does goes around telling everyone that she's on a reality show. She just won't quit asking Ashley. "You're really starting to piss me off," she tells the inmate who keeps peeping into her cell and asking questions. Pushing further she asks Ashley whether she had been to court. Normally, an inmate would stutter because they wouldn't know the law as well as a cop does, but Ashley comes up with a great story. She hadn't been taken to court because she was facing federal charges.
However, next week, life is going to get tougher for Ashley. Miss Williams, the officer who quit, comes back and she makes her life a living hell.
'60 Days In' airs at 9/8c on Thursdays on A&E.
